Advice please! Breast implants/lift and liposuction


Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm commencing my research into cosmetic surgery but feeling pretty overwhelmed and hoping to get some real info from people who've done it. 

I'm 26, from Melbourne, and I'm looking to get surgery on my breasts and also liposuction on my arms and inner thighs. I don't necessarily want my breasts to be big, I just want then to be a bit fuller but predominantly a much better shape and also I want my areolas to be smaller. I have always really disliked the shape of my boobs but in particular my nipples - while they're okay when the nipples are erect because the areola puckers, I really don't like them when they aren't erect. I have included pictures here. I've been looking into dr Tav's mini boobjobs but ideally I could have the surgery in vic. I'm not by any means big/obese to necessitate the lipo but I have stubborn fat on my inner thighs and arms that won't go so I figured if I was already getting the surgery I may as well. I have these questions (if anyone wouldn't mind answering - thank you!):

- does nipple correction happen regardless of whether you get a lift or not? 

- implants without lift vs with lift: is there much of a difference in recovery time for this? 

- does anybody have any recommendations for breasts/lipo in Melbourne or around? Has anybody had good experiences with cosmetic avenue, or heading abroad ie with cosmeditour? 

- funding: for those girls who didn't/werent able to save up first, did you go through a cosmetic loan type scenario or just through a bank? 

- can anybody tell me roughly what I can expect to pay for breast implants, lift, and lipo on those areas? 

- silicon or saline? 

Any help would be so appreciated! Thank you so much!

The shape of your right breast (left in photo) in the bottom photo almost looks to be tuberous. I’m no expert though. Definitely make sure you are only considering plastic surgeons and not cosmetic surgeons. You definitely need someone who knows what their doing  

‘Nipple corrections’ I’m guessing you mean reductions? Don’t occur unless you ask or it’s recommended. The cost is extra. 

In regards to size, if you don’t want/need a lift you may need to consider a decent sized implant to fill you out. 

Saline implants are uncommon. Silicon are much safer than they were back when saline was more popular. They feel much more natural. 

Low interest loans through the bank are generally the same or better than mac credit or similar. 

Hope that helps a little. I can’t give any guidance on price as I have only had a BA, none of the other procedures. BA’s with plastic surgeons can range from about 8k-15k. Cosmedi tour is probably cheaper than that. However, make sure it is a plastic surgeon.

Im no surgeon but in your case I would opt for lift only. You seem to have a decent amoint of tissue but sagging. 

Remember to reasearch breast implant illness and lymphoma in regards to implants. Always good to make an informed decision (breast implant illness and healing by nicole is a good site) x

I agree with @LaurenT your breast appears that it may be tuberous - again I am no expert, but I would strongly recommend you have a consultation with a plastic surgeon for further advice (and definitely not a cosmetic surgeon - they have nowhere near the expertise, nor are they accredited). Silicone is preferable to saline and is quite safe and feels far more natural than saline.

The lady above @Maria80 warns everyone about implant illness - however, in spite of a number of social media posts on the topic, there is no actual scientific evidence in support of that. There are small risks and again you really need to speak with an accredited and qualified plastic surgeon as they can discuss your individual case, your best options and how much it will cost you.

Hi

No need to be like that. All i said was for her to do her own research. Not to believein it. At least if she does her own research she can make an informed decision. All the best

Totally agree @Maria80 we all need to make informed choices and do our research. However, I do believe in evidence based research and not  anecdotal stories. At this point in time there is no medical evidence supporting the notion of implant illness.

If you look a bit further there are studies to support this and doctors who very much believe in it. However I wont post links etc here as I'm worried about getting into trouble. In fact I'm going to leave this site now.  All the best

Hi love i agre with @LaurenT and @sabP but like the other girls have said im no expert. I would definitely make sure when you are researching your surgeon that they are a board certified plastic sergeon,  there is a menu on here called find a clinician with some great surgeon's which will give you a good start. As for price it's going to be based on what is required to obtain the results you are looking for, at your consult  your surgeon will give you a quote which is usually valid fir 6 month's i would also reccomended that you get around 3 diffrent consults before make any decisions. ?
